Custom helicopters are business travel “time machines” for executives

October 20, 2013

Ron Pratte EC145Las Vegas, Nevada – Time is money, as every executive knows, and American Eurocopter provides the finest corporate helicopters to cut down on travel time and allow more convenient meeting schedules, all while traveling in quiet and comfort.

Visitors to NBAA 2013 in Las Vegas, Oct. 22-24, will be able to get a close-up look at a prime example of the high quality corporate helicopter American Eurocopter can provide for businesses and individuals. The custom Eurocopter EC145 on display at Booth C11606B was produced for Ron Pratte, a Chandler, Ariz. businessman, who uses it extensively for business and personal travel.

“It’s a time machine,” said Scott Urschel, President of Pylon Aviation, of Chandler, who has advised Pratte on several helicopter purchases. “He uses it to travel between business sites and to transport family and friends.”

With its spacious and versatile cabin, the powerful and maneuverable twin-engine EC145 is one of several Eurocopter models well suited to business use that can be customized to specific customer requirements and tastes. Other twin-engine models well suited for corporate use are the EC135 and EC155, both best in their class for cabin size, speed and range.
